Teachers who are selected and participate on the adoption team will receive compensation at the per session rate for work completed after school or during the summer and will be provided substitutes where appropriate.
The following questions reflect language in Board Policy regarding identifying teachers to participate in the instructional materials adoption process. All responses will be screened by a committee composed of science teacher leaders (mentors) anonymously:
[The Superintendent or designee shall establish instructional material evaluation committees. These committees shall include teachers, administrators and other staff who have subject-matter expertise, as well as students, parents/guardians and/or community members broadly representative of the district's ethnic and socioeconomic composition. Staff members who participate in selecting and/or evaluating instructional materials shall be those most competent for the task because of their professional training, experience and assignments. The majority of each evaluation committee's members shall be teachers.]
